Just watched the video again with the music this time Fergus - very appropriate (I was in the office first time round so no sound).

I want to know who you wanted by your side at the beginning? And Kevin wants to know who was singing I Will Survive - cos he wants to download it.

Excellent video Fergus. Very helpfull for people thinking of doing it next year.

Have to agree tho, with your last swim you could have turned the music up a bit louder

Good music too.

Thanks folks for all the nice comments.

Once again, it was an amazing day...

Chapelizod was a bit special all right Will. Knew at the time I'd find it funny in hindsight, but would have battered them to death with my half a paddle at the time...

Mairi, you can tell Kevin that the songs come from an album called "Fashon Nugget" from "Cake".

Yea, it may be faster, but that is a down side... Got punted 3 times, but as Willie said... Chapelizod was the best.

I told you that the RED spectrum knew the way - that yellow one hasn't a clue!What a great video, i hurt myself laughing Fergus - anyone tips you on the back of the spectrum with current and you get the OVERSTEER effect - the video gives you a clear picture all the way - nice sluice Conor  As for finishing C1 class - well donePS: i hope you didnt leave that piranha sea kayaker finish without a dipping!!  i am still in counselling over straffen last year.

...Met the last bloke in the video (getting out of the green & white boat) in the car park afterwards...

He told me he spotted me ahead of him in the final straight & told himself...
"there's no way I'm letting some c*#t with a half a paddle beat me"

Sony do own the music & it can't be viewed in 20 odd countries, but Ireland is not one of them...

Hey Daz, that's a problem I get in work sometimes... a lot of our company servers are located overseas, so network traffic goes through there, so it tends to think I am in Belgium or the US a lot of the time.
